While the secret dream of many a Vikings fan has finally come true, his replacement has quietly continued to put up solid numbers, keeping in tune with his solid 2008 season (4000+ yards, 28 TD, 13 INT). Last night against Buffalo, Aaron Rodgers played the first five series, and played well. And, it looks like the 3-4 defense Dom Capers is putting together has come out of the gates strong. These are continuing trends from the game against Cleveland last week.
Of course, it's the preseason. We have to remember that Detroit went 4-0 in the preseason last year. But, the team Minnesotans love to hate could be pretty decent this year. So heads up, Vikes....it's not going to be a cakewalk just because you have the best 39-going-on-40-year-old QB in the league in your fold....and I don't think Chicago is going to be the only bump in the road for you either.
